MGV – Machine Guns Vegas

All I can start off with is, DO IT. You’ll have a “blast”… Part of my husbands bday present ( delayed trip as his birthday is in November) was his choice to either race his favourite car or go to the gun range. Secretly I was hoping he’d choose the gun range because I’ve always wanted to shoot a hand gun. Now I can proudly say I have, whilst admitting that the loud noises of the guns make me jump haha. I booked us in at MGV-Machine Gun Vegas under the Urban Assault  Experience for $99 each. Michael added an AK-47 for $54.95, a Desert Eagle .50cal for $65.00 and an RPK for $59.00 to his package. Well worth it. We got picked up at our hotel in a comfortable air-conditioned van, decked out with machine guns on top, and an awesome/friendly driver (don’t forget to always tip your drivers, especially for completely shuttle service). The drive to the compound was about 20 mins (there was one other pick up as well as traffic). When we arrived …

Own Your Story: Vancouver workshop hosted by Ruby Fremon

My lovely spiritual sister Ruby Fremon is a transformational life coach as well as an energy healer and will be in Vancouver Saturday November 7th, 2015 hosting a workshop from 11 am – 1 pm Further information can be found at https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/own-your-story-vancouver-ruby-fremon?trk=prof-post The growth I have seen arise in Ruby over the years I have known her is very telling of her work. She has helped many, including myself come to terms with accepting and creating positive change in life and taking full control of your own actions. Living authentically and self-empowerment is the major gains I’ve received from our relationship. I encourage you all to take a look at what she has to offer and step outside of your comfort zone. Especially, if you find yourself in a never-ending cycle/rut and are looking for a new direction to take/new approach that works.

Raising a helplessly weak generation

When I say weak, I’m not talking about physically weak but weak in character. I was sitting at a lunch, joking around with my friend’s 9-year-old daughter who had a wiggly tooth. I stated that I could get her more money quickly if she really wanted to add to her candy drawer. With excitement she asked me how. I told her I’d tie her tooth to a door or a car and quickly pop it out. I assured her she wouldn’t feel a thing and that I did that once as a kid. She cried, I got in trouble for the conversation. This isn’t the first time I’ve said that to a kid with them almost in tears or actually in tears. There have been other children, younger actually who thought that concept is great because for a second of inconvenience they saw that the return was worth it. Anyways, my first point Why are we creating a world that is terrifying to children. We’ve created a world where children are afraid of everything. No …

Our wedding story

Our wedding story Mike and I had only been engaged 4 months previous to us running off to elope. We knew what we wanted and we wanted it as soon as possible. My parents always joke that we eloped with “the courtesy of letting everyone know the ceremony date”… I just always say, “ when you know, you know, and we knew” WHERE/LOCATION: Pt Dume Beach, Malibu California WHEN: June 8th 2015, 5 pm WHY: We knew we wanted to run away somewhere together and Vegas was a contender as the wedding planners in Hawaii were very expensive. We ended up deciding that we wanted to treat ourselves to a relaxing, indulging wedding trip rather than a “ party trip “. Getting married in the state of California was very important to me and I’m glad we ended up choosing my home state to intertwine the rest of our lives together. So we decided on Los Angeles (my dream forever home city) rather than San Francisco (where I was born) to lay down new roots. HOW: …
